Sorry to here you went all that way not to hear any capt.Not trying to rub salt in the wounds ,but like I said maybe there is more to it than our 4 bird limit.What state were hunting btw?
I was in Miss, and the birds were there, tracks, strut marks, poop, and and dust pits do not lie. Nor do hundreds of sightings during deer season. The birds are there, they just were locked down.
If history repeats itself then the silence will soon spread northward this way.
